Students who would like to become more confident in using English for study purposes and outside the classroom.

There are no special entry requirements.
The course is aimed at students whose proficiency level is around B1+. If you are not sure of your level, you can check the evaluation forms on our page "enseignement".

At the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • write clear texts on topics related to their interests
  • understand extended speech and everyday conversations provided the topic is reasonably familiar
  • read articles and reports concerned with contemporary problems
  • use accurate language to express their views on topical issues

Each session covers a different topic and students are supposed to work individually, in pairs or take part in whole-class activities. The course offers practice in the four competencies (reading, listening, speaking and writing). Key grammar points will be refreshed.

Please note that the first semester will cover only half of the book, with the second half being taught in the second semester.
It is, however, possible to sign up for one semester only.

In order to get a certificate, students are required to:

  • attend regularly (80% attendance)
  • pass the end-of-semester test
  • submit a written assignment

Please make sure you get a copy of the coursebook before the start of classes.
